Due to family commitments, Mike (M0MCY) and Denise (2E0LSO) will be stepping down from their roles on Team GxFF.

The rest of Team GxFF (and I’m sure all GxFF award recipients and event participants) would like to thank them for their help and support in helping grow the GxFF program and raising its profile. The last year has seen an expanded set of awards and successful Autumn and Brass Monkey events all due in no small part to their hard work.

Thanks once again go to Mike M0MCY and Denise 2E0LSO for their contribution to GxFF in those two roles over the last year.

Team GxFF are delighted to welcome Ray M0DHP as Awards Manager and Bob M0BOB as Events Organiser, both are active members of the GxFF community and will be a great addition to the team.

Please be patient as we transition the team, especially in the issuing of awards.

Parks in the Americas Week – Flora and Fauna Expeditions – April/2022

Project Presentation: PARKS IN THE AMERICAS WEEK

The WWFF program wants to draw attention to the importance of protecting nature, flora and fauna. In this spirit, radio amateur operators set up and operate their radio stations from designated natural parks and protected natural areas – generating attention to these areas, while giving the community the opportunity to learn about our activities aimed at preserving the environment. WWFF is an international, non-commercial program run by national coordinators for a
large number of national flora and fauna programs.

PARKS IN THE AMERICAS WEEK deals with the dissemination of the presence of Radio Amateurs in PARKS AND OTHER NATURAL PRESERVATION AREA IN THE AMERICAN CONTINENT with the purpose of spreading, through Amateur Radio, the conservation of the environment to the national and international amateur radio community through bilateral contacts and SWL, CW , satellite, digital modes and other forms of contacts made by Amateur Radio operators
This type of contact is part of the International Awards Program – WWFF, for contacts and SWL on all amateur bands and all operational modes. The stations contacted will be radio amateur stations operating in accordance with national and international legislation, in the authorized bands.

The realization of this non-profit event, without any personal, religious and or political-ideological objectives, aims to install a portable structure of at least one radio amateur station on a temporary basis in Nature Preservation Areas, operated by a group of radio qualified amateurs and the corresponding infrastructure, made up of antenna
systems (portable mounted – without changes to the physical environment), radio and power supply during the event, thus enabling contacts with all the national and international community of radio amateurs and SWL. The activation group will be responsible for the environmental preservation of the site, as well as the removal of any object at the end of the activation and is obliged to follow any and all norms related to the conservation of the area.

Objective
The objective of this project is to seek partnership for its execution as a participant or logistical support with organizations that recognize the work of environmental awareness work at national and international level.

The event We invite Radio Amateur Operators and Radio Amateur Groups to participate in the event PARKS IN THE AMERICAS WEEK, based on the expeditionary activity in Flora and Fauna Conservation Units carried out by the WWFF Program – World Wide Flora & Fauna in Amateur Radio (www.wwff.co). The event “PARKS IN THE AMERICAS” aimed at
stimulating the installation of portable stations in Parks and Conversation Units in the Americas. The list of parks in the different countries is cataloged on the website ( www.wwff.co/ directory) and there may be additional records available with the WWFF Coordinator of the desired country.

Date:
The event will take place from 00:00h UTC of April 3th, 2022 to 21:00h UTC of April 10th
Organization: WWFF Brasil – by PS8RV, Brazilian National Coordinator.
Reference site:

Awards:
